We enjoy the view, the food, the service, too! Eat in or take out - A grand way to cap off a day exploring! Walk to the Nubble and check out the visitor's center, too!

My husband & I stopped here one afternoon after visiting the Nubble Light House. We were pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. I thought it was going to be overpriced mediocre food but I was pleasantly surprised. We shared the fish tacos and crab cakes and each had soup--the lobster bisque & the clam chowder. Everything was good.... More

This restaurant is located at the base of Cape Neddick Lighthouse: there is indoor seating with views of the water and lighthouse and outdoor seating with a carry out window for food and ice cream. The seafood dinner was excellent: the fried shrimp and clams very good. The meal comes with fresh baked rolls and choice of potato, cole slaw,... More

Seafood dishes were fresh, but slightly more expensive than some other local restaurants. Views from most tables, however, are unparallelled in the area.

It is sad to say that a place with such an amazing location and wonderful waitresses can have such terrible ownership. The woman that owns this establishment is rude, disrespectful and a shady to say the least. When I questioned her male host about a missing coat on the phone, he told me no one turned in a coat. I...

I would give zero stars if I could. I would like to echo my friend's review of the restaurant and state that I was part of the party of 15. The server was very nice to our group and therefore I have nothing bad to say about her. The food was not seasoned, bland and would I go back again... More

We just returned from York and I could not wait to write a review regarding our absolutely awful and somewhat unbelievable experience we had here. We ate here on a Friday night and had a reservation for 15. At first, all was good. We were seated quickly and they were extremely accommodating to the 7 young children in our party.... More

I've been coming here for several years and the quality of the food is consistently good. I know whatever I order is going to be delicious. The price points a on the pricey side but you can't beat the location: Right on the ocean with the lighthouse next door. I recommend trying it, you will not regret it.

This restaurant was suggested by our hotel staff and it did not disappoint. The food is prepared to one's liking and is abundant and flavorful without being overpowering. The lobster roll is chock full of lobster meat, dressed very lightly with mayonnaise. The maple-lemon-glazed salmon is so delicious and Mrs. Fox prepares a fresh and scrumptious Maine blueberry pie!

Out door window is quick and it's nice to sit outside. We didn't go inside. Lobster roll was priced similar to other places around York. Tons of lobster on it! Good quick food.
